Cougars beat Washington, look forward to season ender in Hawaii
PULLMAN, Wash. - They're probably still celebrating on the Palouse. Washington State beat Washington Saturday afternoon at Martin Stadium for the fourth time in five years.
The win washed away a seven game losing streak and talk of being the worst team in PAC-10 history. And now, with a conference win under their belts, head coach Paul Wulff said his team finally has something on which to build for the future.
The Cougars came from behind, knocking a field goal through the uprights with :28 remaining in regulation to force overtime. Two overtimes later, the Huskies missed a field goal. The Cougars made their attempt and won the game 16-13.
The loss left the Huskies as the only winless team in the nation, with an 0-11 record and an 0-8 PAC-10 record.
The Cougars improved to 2-10 and 1-8 in the PAC-10. They have a chance at 3-10 next Saturday, as the team will travel to play Hawaii in its final game of the season.
Hawaii (6-5) is coming off a 49-17 win over the Idaho Vandals.
